Throwback Thursday: Veggie Benedict

Hey everyone. This post is probably going to be kind of short because I had a bad day and am in a bad mood and don't want to get all crazy in a public forum haha.

Here is another trip down memory lane with a throwback. This recipe was part of my Vegan MoFo restaurant recreation theme and is my Veggie Benedict. Enjoy!

Veggie Benedict
1 Whole Grain English Muffin (I used Ezekiel)
1/2 cup firm tofu
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped tomato
1 packed cup baby spinach
2-3 tbsp favorite Vegan Hollandaise sauce (I used the Vegg Hollandaise Recipe)
1. Toast English muffin and prepare your hollandaise sauce.
2. Brown tofu in a skillet. Remove the tofu then add onion to hot pan. Cook onions until soft and slightly browned.
2. Once onions are cooked, add spinach to the pan. Cover pan until spinach is wilted (about 2 minutes).
3. Uncover pan and add tomatoes and tofu to pan. Season with your favorite seasonings. I use pepper, garlic and nooch.
4. Once tofu scramble is finished, spoon the mixture on top of the english muffin halves. Top with hollandaise and enjoy!

It's not pretty but it does taste good.

There you have it, my version of Another Broken Yolk Cafe's Veggie Benedict. I had such a good time with that MoFo theme, too bad it was too rich for my tummy. I'll have to start doing more restaurant recreations again, just spread them out this time.

Hope you all have a good night. It seems I'm going to have Fridays off for a while so I'll be working on Saturday's Nerd Alert post tomorrow. See you on Saturday!


  1. I hope your bad day ends with a bubble bath (or whatever nice thing you like to do!), and some hot tea (or wine!). My bad days usually manifest in the car, when I'm swearing at someone who doesn't know how to drive. Ha!

    I haven't had a hollandaise replacement ever, and this certainly makes me want to get my hands on a packet of the Vegg version! Yum!

    1. Thanks Ingrid. Oy it has turned into a bad few days but it is what it is. Everything will be fine, just a bit stressful.

      The Vegg is a really great product and they have a bunch of great recipes with it! Definitely worth a try.

  2. Hope your bad day isn't repeated tomorrow! Feel better!

    I'm intrigues by this Vegg Hollandaise sauce, because I have so much Vegg in my pantry!

    1. It's been a rough few days but everything will be ok. Just a bit stressed!

      Oooh definitely give it a try!

  3. Sorry you had a bad day. Hang in there--it's almost the weekend. Can you do something fun or relaxing just for you?

    1. Thanks Sage! I'm finally getting to relax now and I'm enjoying every second of it until I have to shovel tomorrow ;)

  4. Oh, I finally got some Vegg so I could try this! Have a happy weekend!!!

    1. I'd love to know what you think! Thanks Jenny, you too!

  5. Beautiful Benedict. You should definitely get all crazy in a public forum. Look how popular FF's blog is now.

    1. Haaaaaahaha that made me laugh out loud! As much as I would love to go all crazy I'll probably just have to keep my mouth shut for now. Which is sad because it would probably be entertaining ;)
